Gabriel and the Hour Book


Published February 10, 2013


LibriVox recording of Gabriel and the Hour Book, by Evaleen Stein. Read by Laura Victoria.

Brother Stephen has the heart of an artist and wishes to leave the abbey to travel and see the world. However, King Louis has decreed that an "hour book" be made for his bride, Lady Anne, which in turn causes the Abbott to refuse Brother Stephen's request to leave the brotherhood as his illuminations are the most beautiful, and as such, he desires that Brother Stephen should be the one to make the hour book. This decision angers Brother Stephen. Will Brother Stephen stay at the abbey and carry out his task or will he refuse and bring about a ban against him, a serious matter indeed. Or will he choose to stay? And how does Gabriel, the little colour grinder with such a beautiful disposition help him to decide? (Summary by Laura Victoria)

Subject: You will thoroughly enjoy this book
While classified as fiction, this wonderful book will give you real insight into the incredible work done by medieval monks in copying and preserving great books with infinite talent and patience. All of Laura Victoria’s books (aka Laura Caldwell) are great! Don’t miss any!
